opheilēma - debt - do

Beloved in Christ ... Charitoo,

... it is possible to stay in opheilēma - debt [that which is owed, that which is justly or legally due, a debt, metaphorically - offence, sin]

[Rom 4:3-5] KJV
v 3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

v 4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

v 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Grace is God's unmerited favour. You can not work to obtain it. You cannot abide by the law to obtain righteousness and earn it!

We can only receive!

Smith Wigglesworth said it well:

"Only believe!"
